He wants her to pretend. That’s what annoys her the most. Her first legitimate . . . anything, in years, or ever, depending upon how she looks at it, and her boss of all people wants her to pretend it isn’t happening.
It would piss Naomi off beyond all reasoning if it doesn’t scare her more. She knows that if she doesn’t pretend, all it will take is one slip-up, one mistake, and he could disappear. Her worries for James all but overpower everything else, because she knows that she will never be able to prove he’s insignificant to her.
Naomi Williams. Original character.
